Default A Little Sad Day For Me

I let my dad trade my baby in on a supercrew F-150 today. He's been wanting a supercrew for quite a while and now had the means to get one. He had a 1999 F-150 4x4 supercab 4.6 v8 with only 69,000 miles that he had been driving for almost two years. So he is letting me take over the payments on it and he traded my truck in (which was paid off). I couldn't really afford something on my own since I'm 18, a college student, and only working part time. I'm already missing my Ranger really bad b/c it was my 1st vehicle and you just get attached to them. I spent alot of time and money on it. But it also had a small oil leak and needed a set of tires and a some other 100,000 maintenance work done. But on the bright side I got a 4x4 truck and alot more room. I still plan on hanging around the site if that's cool with you guys. This site has been awesome to me not only for technical help, but I have made a lot of new friends from here as well.

I sure did on Christmas day when a good snow came! 4x4 has always been more of a want than a need for me as usually only a few good snows come a year. But it's still fun to play around with occasionally.

Maybe I can take some pics of it tomorrow if I feel like it. I had my wisdom teeth cut out today so I couldn't go to the dealer.

Thanks guys! I miss my Ranger tremendously already! But I have a whole lot more room on the inside (my head doesn't touch the roof!), a V8, and 4x4! Now I'll prob be even more jealous when I drive my dad's new 2007 supercrew!
